Baylor baseball extends win streak to thirteen

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor baseball toppled No. 20 Oklahoma State 13-5 on Friday night at Baylor Ballpark. The Bears (29-17, 10-9) used good pitching and even better hitting to take the series opener from the Cowboys (28-18-1, 15-4).

After escaping a bases loaded situation in the top of the first, Baylor responded by loading the bases right away in the bottom half and cashing in. Nick Loftin led off with a single, Richard Cunningham hit a double and Davis Wendzel was hit by a pitch. Andy Thomas broke it open with a three-run double and scored on a Shea Langeliers sacrifice fly.

OSU countered with two runs in the second, but BU separated again in the fourth. Cole Haring led off with a home run, Nick Loftin singled and moved over on an error, Cunningham hit a run-scoring single, Wendzel roped an RBI double and Thomas drove another run with a single.

Cunningham added to the lead again in the sixth with a solo homer.

In the seventh, Oklahoma State hit a three-run homer. However, the Bears bounced right back with a Cunningham RBI single, Wendzel two-run double and Langeliers sac fly.

BU starter Cody Bradford (6-4) earned the win, giving up three runs on five hits and four walks with 10 strikeouts in 6.2 innings. OSU starter Joe Leinhard (5-2) took the loss, allowing eight runs on 11 hits with one strikeout in four innings.
